I Affirm This
The Nashville Statement
Daniel of Doulogos Name:Daniel
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
About Me: I used to believe that evolution was reasonable, that homosexuality was genetic, and that people became Christians because they couldn't deal with the 'reality' that this life was all there was. I used to believe, that if there was a heaven - I could get there by being good - and I used to think I was more or less a good person. I was wrong on all counts. One day I finally had my eyes opened and I saw that I was not going to go to heaven, but that I was certainly going to suffer the wrath of God for all my sin. I saw myself as a treasonous rebel at heart - I hated God for creating me just to send me to Hell - and I was wretched beyond my own comprehension. Into this spiritual vacuum Jesus Christ came and he opened my understanding - delivering me from God's wrath into God's grace. I was "saved" as an adult, and now my life is hid in Christ. I am by no means sinless, but by God's grace I am a repenting believer - a born again Christian.

The Buzz

Daniel's posts are almost always pastoral and God centered. I appreciate and am challenged by them frequently. He has a great sense of humor as well.
- Marc Heinrich

His posts are either funny or challenging. He is very friendly and nice.
- Rose Cole

[He has] good posts, both the serious like this one, and the humorous like yesterday. [He is] the reason that I have restrained myself from making Canadian jokes in my posts.
- C-Train

This post contains nothing that is of any use to me. What were you thinking? Anyway, it's probably the best I've read all day.
- David Kjos

Daniel, nicely done and much more original than Frank the Turk.
- Jonathan Moorhead

There are some people who are smart, deep, or funny. There are not very many people that are all 3. Daniel is one of those people. His opinion, insight and humor have kept me coming back to his blog since I first visited earlier this year.

The Herman Munster Principle
I remember an episode of "The Munsters" from my youth. In it, Herman was being examined by a doctor who marvelled because, as he said,
"You seem to have every disease known to man, and yet, while all of them are working to kill you, none of them are able, being held in check by the rest - it is as if a hundred men were all trying to scramble through an open doorway, but none were able to because of the others, such that no one gets in, although all are trying"

Somethings stand out in your memory I guess. And this one quote stood out for me, in that I am reminded of it when I think about posting. Sometimes I won't post for days - not because I don't have some things I would like to say, but rather because I have too many things that are competing for a post, and I don't have ample time to write even one post about them that is sufficient.

Perhaps I have to take a page from some of the other blogs I have read - where I tackle a big topic in many posts (Part one, Part two etcetera...) Specifically, I wouldn't mind making a post about how the "Frustration Driven House Church" - that is, how frustration with "churchology" and ignorance of church history have combined to give fertile soil for the house church movement.

Likewise, I would like to take some time to talk about why most Christians don't share their faith "worth a can of beans" - and how to deal with that.

I would like to discuss the new covenant, and perhaps my own end times philosophy (I believe Christ is coming back.... ;-D)

I am almost finished reading a book by Swindoll, which I would like to review, (not to mention that I have quite a load of books sitting in the queue waiting to be read.)

There is more, but if I take any longer I probably won't even post this much!
